The Rapide is British maker Aston Martin's first four-door sports car, designed to "encapsulate core values of power, beauty, and soul." It has a hand-built 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 470 brake horsepower and a six-speed "Touchtronic 2" automatic transmission that allows the driver the option of automatic or manual gear changes. It was first shown in concept form in 2006 at the Detroit auto show and got approval from Aston Martin's new shareholders in 2007 following the sale of the brand by Ford.
